Of the incidents reported women are 7 times less likely to report homophobic violence to the police even though it is apparent through the LGBT community that actual incidents between male and female are at a similar level.
Susan Paterson from the Diversity and Citizen Directorate of the MPS explains that it is vital to gain a better understanding of women’s experience of homophobia or transphobia which is why they have commissioned the market research company Stormbreak Research and Consultancy who use gay fieldworkers and understand the LGBT community to implement a survey within London which investigates womens' experiences of homophobia and transphobia.
The survey is strictly confidential.
